If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

A window from inside Ajloun Castle in the country of Jordan in the Middle East, just a few miles South of the Syrian/Jordan Border. A beautiful ancient castle with outstanding architecture that shows the fantastic detail throughout the castle. From the top of the castle are views of Jordan and Syria.
As I stood on the top of the Castle starring out upon the land of two countries filled with history and shinning in the sun, suddenly a fighter plane from Syria flew directly above me back to Syria to continue the devastating violence to the people of that country.
It was a moment of reality and sadness in a beautiful place. I loved this window for the detail and beauty it allows those that visit to immerse themselves in for a moment despite the sadness just a few miles away at the countries border. Its symbolizes possibility, light, openness to me and it's an image I keep in my mind often.
